Watercolour artist based in Aberdeen, Scotland.

My name is Gordon McLeman. I've had a varied career, from geophysicist in the Oil & Gas Industry to International Tax Specialist. I am now a full-time self-taught artist living in Aberdeen, Scotland.

My interest in watercolour painting began back in the early 1990s when a spell working in Cornwall, England, gave me the inspiration to get started. Since retiring from my job in 2017 I now paint whenever I can and thanks mainly to my online Etsy shop my original works and prints can now be found in private collections across the UK, North America, Continental Europe, Australia and India.

I paint whatever takes my fancy at but am happiest with sea-scapes and landscapes, from container ships to iconic buildings, and living in Aberdeen it's perhaps no surprise that I've painted quite a few oil & gas subjects and scenes of Scotland. I normally work in watercolour or pen and wash, in a range of styles depending on my mood at the time. I always use Winsor & Newton artists quality watercolour paints and Bockingford or The Langton paper.

I print my own work on a Canon printer using genuine Canon inks and Canon 260gm/m2 Pro Luster paper. This combination delivers exceptional long lasting prints with a beautiful lustre finish for great colour saturation and a soft feel, and will look great with a mount and framed in any environment

I offer to supply some of my prints framed to UK customers. I use either black, white or wood effect frames (either moulded, smooth or textured) with 'snow-white' or 'ice-white' mounts, depending on what I think looks best for the individual prints. These are the names given by my mount supplier. I would say that 'ice-white' is a bright pure white whereas 'snow-white' is slightly off-white.

Note that the watermarks seen on some of my screen images are for screen-view only, they are not added to the prints shipped to customers.
